Home schoolers, public schoolers and even private schoolers are curious about the phases of the moon.
The moon is able to hold both the awe and curiousity of most people.
Why does the moon look different throughout the month?
Why does the moon appear in different places in the sky on various nights?
Why do we sometimes see the moon right in the middle of the day?
My family loves the moon! We are always peering into the sky, looking for the moon.
It is not unusual for someone to come bursting in the door, yelling, "Hurry, you've got to see the moon!"
Although, my family loves the moon, I am usually at a loss when it comes to answering their questions.
I have plenty of books on the subject, yet somehow the answers always evade me.
Does your family have a fascination with the moon?
Are you at a loss for words when your children have questions concerning the moon?
Then, you do not want to miss out on this awesome book written by Jay Ryan!
Moonfinder is not only informative, it is a delight!
The story line is about a father and his young son, knicknamed, Moonfinder by his dad.
Listen in on their conversations, and enjoy learning about the moon.
As an added bonus, the illustrations in this book are nothing but amazing!
These illustrations are original paintings done by Jay Ryan.
Not only is he a gifted writer, but he is an amazing artist!
I can't speak highly enough about this book!
Now, I'm off to try to get the kids to put this book down so they can complete the rest of their schoolwork!
